Please take a moment to review the following information
We offer a free 15-minute phone consultation, so you can get a sense of whether you feel comfortable beginning treatment. It is also an opportunity for us to decide whether or not we will be able to help you.
We typically schedule initial intake sessions for one hour. However, clients can request a shorter (45 minutes) or longer (75 minutes) appointment.
We offer teletherapy sessions via a secure, HIPAA-compliant video platform in New York and New Jersey. We are registered out-of-state teletherapists in Florida, and also hold Authority to Practice Interjurisdictional Telepsychology (APIT) in 29 other states and the District of Columbia that participate in PSYPACT.*
If you do not attend your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
We are out-of-network providers and will furnish all the necessary paperwork for our clients to be reimbursed by their health insurance company. The majority of our clients receive some form of reimbursement from their insurance. Prior to your first appointment, please call your carrier to determine your coverage.
Regular treatment sessions are 45 minutes and are billed from $240-$285. The initial intake fee is $320-$380 for one hour. The fee for longer and shorter sessions is pro-rated based on the $320-$380 hourly rate.
Cash, check or credit card are accepted for payment at the time of service. We ask for a credit card number to be charged in the event of nonpayment.
Good Faith Estimate
Pursuant to the 2022 No Surprises Act, you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call CBT Specialists of New Jersey at 201-844-9934.
*PSYPACT is an interstate compact which offers a voluntary expedited pathway for practice to qualified psychologists who wish to practice in multiple states. PSYPACT is designed to facilitate the practice of telepsychology across state boundaries. In order to practice telepsychology in PSYPACT states, psychologists licensed in PSYPACT states only, can apply to the PSYPACT Commission for an Authority to Practice Interjurisdictional Telepsychology (APIT). The PSYPACT Commission is the governing body of PSYPACT and is comprised of one representative from each PSYPACT state. More information regarding PSYPACT and its requirements can be found at www.psypact.org.
